NEXT ENERGY ∙ EWE Research Centre for Energy Technology

In an energy system that is increasingly based on fluctuating wind and solar power, the demands placed on supply grids and electricity generators are escalating. At the same time, the need for decentralised technologies to raise the proportion of self-consumed PV electricity is increasing. Both factors lead to an increased requirement for solutions to create temporal flexibility in energy demand, such as, for example, storage technologies. At the EWE Research Centre NEXT ENERGY, we have oriented both the structure and content of our research portfolio so as to directly confront these challenges.

With its research divisions Fuel Cells, Energy Storage and Photovoltaics, NEXT ENERGY possesses expertise – ranging from materials research to system integration – in three key technologies that are of crucial importance for the transformation to decentralised energy provision. We bring these components together in our Energy Systems Division to create integrated solutions for buildings, towns and regions. In addition, we address the modelling and analysis of future energy supply systems at the national and international level so as to obtain an overall perspective.
